A branch of aeronautics in which Germany excels: Snapshots of the Zeppelin Airship Hansa flying at Copenhagen, Denmark. Interest in the subject of airships is revived by the cabled announcement this week that a Zepplin machine had been fitteed with a machine gun at Friedrichsafen, and had fired 500 rounds of ball cartrige successfully. The pictures reproduced above were taken recently at Copenhagen by Mr Oscar Monrad, of Palmerston North. Court Zepplin's Hansa was the first dirigible seen in Denmark, and naturally its apparence created a considerable stir. Underneath the Zeppelin Airship Hansa: A close view, showing one of the propellors.

Description
Showing a branch of aeronautics in which Germany excels; the Zeppelin Airship Hansa flying at Copenhagen, Denmark. Interest in the subject of airships is revived by the cabled announcement this week that a Zepplin machine had been fitted with a machine gun at Friedrichsafen, and had fired 500 rounds of ball cartrige successfully. The pictures reproduced above were taken recently at Copenhagen by Mr Oscar Monrad, of Palmerston North. Count Zepplin's Hansa was the first dirigible seen in Denmark, and naturally its apparence created a considerable stir. This view shows a close view of one of the propellors from underneath the Hansa.
